We arrived in Gdansk Poland and chose to go to the Stutthof Concentration Camp. The holocaust is certainly not a pleasant topic, and it’s beyond my imagination the cruelty of the Nazi regime that is on display in this place. Stutthof was the first death camp established outside of Nazi Germany and the last to be discovered. It’s estimated that over 100,000 prisoners were kept here and when liberated their were only 100 still alive.
The scale of atrocities hits home in the exhibit of thousands of shoes confiscated from prisoners that lie piled up in dusty stacks.
There’s a gas chamber and a crematorium on the site. It was an interesting but also very disturbing day.
